I don't often play with a deep stack, I usually cash out after doubling up, but I'm planning on moving up stakes so thought I'd give it a go to get used to bigger money.

I'd say a pretty ideal situation for a big stack. On the turn I think he has ~25% equity at most. That's with an open-ended straight flush draw (not a likely hand in my opinion, but possible because of the deep stacks). JT of hearts for example:

9 normal flush cards, but 2 of them give me a full house, so it's reduced to 7. Then 6 straight outs, normally 8, but the flush makes up those 2 other cards. So 13 outs in total, which is ~25% equity.

I think I played this hand pretty well. Any comments?
